    Welcome to today's society of our debt slave culture.

    Authorities say Roy Walton was allegedly intoxicated while riding his mower on a sidewalk in front of a Rite Aid on March 22.

    The arresting officers were on routine patrol when they noticed the mower parked outside of the store, located at Woodward Avenue and Square Lake Road, at about 9:50 p.m.

    Police waited and watched as Walton left the store, powered up the mower and rolled away.

    After stopping Walton, police determined he was intoxicated, arrested him and impounded the mower. According to police, Walton was charged with a felony because of prior drunken driving convictions.

    Nah, it's not about revenue.

    A felony conviction on a f*cking lawn mower.  Just goddam disgusting what wrinkly old hags like Wendy Potts will do to folks who aren't in the legalese merchant "profession".

    Chief Judge Wendy Potts, who had issued a statement Thursday defending Tyner and her work ethic, appeared to step back from that position after watching the television report.

    Both nasty b!tches.  And, there's not a cop out there I feel sorry for anymore.  They're a$$holes too.

    Sorry guys, but did you miss the third time part? (none / 0) (#5)

    This isn't his first go around with hitting the bottle and then hitting the street.

    I've more than a few run-in with alchies who tried to drive under my truck. So he won't be getting very much sympathy from me.

    And like it or not, under Michigan Law, Mr. Walton got off lightly. He could've gotten five year for what he did.

    According to the SoS:

    Third Offense Within Lifetime (any combination) is a Felony

    Operating While Intoxicated

    $500 to $5,000 fine, and either of the following:

    • 1 to 5 years imprisonment
    • Probation, with 30 days to 1 year in jail.

    Add to that...

    • 60 to 180 days community service.
    • Driver's license revocation and denial if there are 2 convictions within 7 years or 3 convictions within 10 years. The minimum period of revocation and denial is 1 year (minimum of 5 years if there was a prior revocation within 7 years).
    • License plate confiscation.
    • Vehicle immobilization for 1 to 3 years, unless the vehicle is forfeited.
    • Possible vehicle forfeiture.
    • Vehicle registration denial.
    • 6 points added to the offender's driving record.
    • Driver Responsibility Fee of $1,000 for 2 consecutive years.

    With any luck, he'll look for some help after he gets out.

    Probably cause (none / 0) (#7)

    I wonder what was determined to be probable cause in this case.  Was he weaving?  Did he cross over the yellow lines?  Was he speeding?  Or was the fact that he was on a lawnmower provide all the probable cause thought necessary?

    Is cop boredom reason enough to stop anyone for doing anything?

    MCL 257.625a should concern our resident CDL guy.. (none / 0) (#8)

    According to MCL 257.625a(5):

    A person who was operating a commercial motor vehicle and who refuses to submit to a preliminary chemical breath analysis upon a peace officer's lawful request is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than 93 days or a fine of not more than $100.00, or both.

    That's right, if you don't forfeit your 5th Amendment rights, you get to get popped with a misdemeanor.
